We have a Harken installed our Westsail 32 "Funny Girl".

1. No we have no linkplate below the drum, however the pullpit is welded slightly of centre, to starboard and the drum hits the vertical tube to port, this is being remedied as we have just replaced our bowsprit. Our 150% genny was ordered from UK sails at the same time. What a difference it all makes.

2. The professional installer insisted on the add-on "sheeve block" as you call it. He told us of many a problem people have had not being able to store the sail. One thing to remember here, we have 3 halyars that go to the top mast as most do, remember to be careful which one of the halyards you use each year when you re-install your sail. It has to be the one that goes through the sheeve!

This is a bit of a late reply, you will enjoy furler sailing, with this and our electric anchor windlass it leads to much more enjoyment of your boat.
